U20 Team

ONTARIO STORM - U20 TEAM OVERVIEW



The Ontario Storm under-20 development program is the high performance representative program for under-20 age-grade female rugby players in Ontario. It is designed to develop and showcase young female athletes for Rugby Canada National U20 teams. 

Rugby Ontario is pleased to announce key details for our 2015 Ontario Senior and Under-20 Women’s Provincial Representative Fifteens Program.


REVAMPED NATIONAL COMPETITION MODEL:

Canada East Regional Championships

As announced by Rugby Canada earlier this year, the National Women’s League – the previous Senior Women’s National Championship structure – has been replaced in 2015. Instead of having all provinces come together in one location to play in a two-tier National Championship, the eastern and western regions of Canada will have their own respective regional championships.

The
Canada East Regional Championships will be played in Montreal from July 31 to August 3, with the senior women’s division featuring sides from Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada. The tournament will consist of three games, with the three regions playing each other once.

Rugby Canada selectors will be at both regional championships to select players for Canada East and Canada West camps. 

Canadian Rugby Championship – Under-20 Women

Rugby Canada and the Provincial Unions have worked to establish an Under-20 Women’s Canadian Rugby Championship in 2015. As it currently stands, Ontario will face Under-20 provincial sides from British Columbia, the Prairies, and the Atlantic provinces. The tournament will be held in Regina between July 14 and 19.
